Have 2.5 hours at the mall tomorrow - what should I check out?

Taking tomorrow off due to dr's appointments but have a 2.5 hour gap that I'm going to spend at the mall.  I plan to stop by MAC, Sephora, Lush (inside Macy's), and Nordstrom and make the most of that time.  I'm hoping after the "back to school" rush and new shipments, the stores will be less hectic and well stocked.

 

What's something you've been dying to try out or going to replace your current faves with?  You all have been so great with recommendations and reviews - I'd love to hear your wishlists.

 

Here's my list so far (generic right now - building the list of what I will specifically look at):

Skincare

  • Exfoliators - Kate Somerville

Face

  • Primers - Hourglass, Becca, Too Faced
  • Foundation - Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, Jouer, Lancome Teint Idole & Visionnaire, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua(L/C), KGD Aqua
  • Highlighters - Becca, 
  • Bronzer - Too Faced Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder, Chanel Les Beiges

Eyes

  • Concealers - Tarte, NARS, LM
  • Primers/Base - NARS, LORAC, UD
  • Mascara - Chanel Inimitable

Lips

  • BITE Luminous Creme
  • Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy

Body/Fragrance

  • Jo Malone - Nectarine Blossom & Honey

Fall Collections

  • NARS
  • Giorgio Armani Kaleidoscope
  • Tom Ford Color - very interested in the new perfumes
  • Lancome L'absolu Desir
  • Guerlain Voilette de Madame

We'll see how much I can fit in..oh and please give me strength tomorrow to now buy out each store...eep!

Okay - whittling down my list and printing out coupons.. Lush will have to be later (unless I have time today) because it's at a different location.  Wish me luck!  I really need to get a digital camera - pics on my phone are not going to do justice to the makeup.

Well, I think a lot of the Fall collections aren't going to be available until September (grr..will have to go back then)

But there's still Guerlain:

You can check out every item on my loves list for me, and then get them for me! Thanks in advance! :smileywink:

 

Laura Mercier Spellbound highlighter is -- hands down -- one of my best purchases of the year!

Heehee..I would LOVE to have that be my job!  Will people look at me funny if I take a bunch of photos in the store or run out to look at it in a natural like?

I'm jealous! I've been dying to go into a Lush Store!! 

I've tried some face mask that a worth looking into if you haven't tried them, and i heard the Ocean Salt is really good!

Re: Have 2.5 hours at the mall tomorrow - what should I check out?

I agree, def check out the face masks because you cannot order them online! Also, you gotta buy atleast ONE fizzy (bath bomb). That's their best selling product. hehe

Re: Have 2.5 hours at the mall tomorrow - what should I check out?

I'd love to buy a fizzy, but I don't have a good soaking tub in my house.  I've been putting off my bathroom reno's because of how expensive they are.  Think I might just buy a new place instead..haha.

Ohhh Their Bath Fizzies are AMAZING! I don't have any clue which one i tried but it was awesome!

Re: Have 2.5 hours at the mall tomorrow - what should I check out?

Oh! Don't forget to check out the LUSH lip scrubs :smileywink:

Re: Have 2.5 hours at the mall tomorrow - what should I check out?

I second this! Their lip scrubs are great and they SA was so good, she convinced me to get the lip balm that goes with it, but no regrets. Smoothest lips I've ever had!

Re: Have 2.5 hours at the mall tomorrow - what should I check out?

Definitely - one of the main reasons I'm going there.  I haven't been in years.  Kind of bummed it's not a standalone store.  There is one at another mall but it's not one I like.

Yep - I have the bday sample and like it a lot but don't wear it too often.  It does work great on the center of my eyelids for more dimension.  So glad they came out with this one b/c I abhorred Moon/High Beam.  I am looking to expand my inventory of highlighters for different looks - more matte, for example.

Oh..forgot to add lip scrubs - a bunch were recommended in a previous post.  A lot of these are based on recs you all provided over the last few weeks, so thank you!

you should check out that new makeup Academy palette from the Sephora collection, and tell me what you think of the quality :smileywink:

Will do!  My arms are going to be covered in swatches...so fun!
